COVID-19 Letter to Our Community

A Message from our President and CEO

Throughout the world, we continue to see the broad impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here in Yuma, I want you to know first-hand what your healthcare team at Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) is doing to ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff. As we face the quickly evolving challenges ahead, I want you to know that we are grateful to be a part of a community who truly cares for each other.

I am heartened daily by the level of support shown to the medical community by the entire Yuma community. As we face each day, I ask for your continued support of our dedicated team of Yuma YRMC caregivers. We express our deepest gratitude to all of you who continue to support your local hospital frontline heroes with donations, kind words of support, sewing of masks, food and care packages for employees.
We extend our sincere gratitude to our frontline healthcare heroes, the physicians, nurses, therapists, technologists and other frontline caregivers who arrive each day with resilience and commitment beyond measure. Also, heroic are those who provide social and other support to patients. These heroes clean and disinfect rooms and equipment, transport patients, deliver meals and ensure frontline staff has the tools they need to provide healing care. Each day as I round the hospital, I am inspired by their dedication to our community.
We are working every day and around the clock to ensure that our resources and capabilities are ready as we face the potential wide-spread of COVID-19, all while meeting the ongoing needs of our community. To learn more about how we are preparing and how you can prepare for COVID-19 please visit
On behalf of our YRMC caregivers and patients, we extend our gratitude all those who have continued to support us. Please continue to stay home and practice social distancing. It is challenging, but our collective diligence is needed to protect each other. We are in this together!
With sincere gratitude,
Robert J. Trenschel, DO, MPH
President and Chief Executive Officer
